In a remarkable turnout, this year's Arizona Automatic Merchandising Council (AAMC) and California Automatic Vendor Council (CAVC) annual meeting in Indian Wells, CA, witnessed record-breaking attendance from September 20-23, drawing more suppliers than ever before.
Notable attendees included top operators, such as Canteen and USG Elites, Vistar Regional President Dan Walsh, OPCO Presidents, Sales managers, NAMA representatives, brokers from BBI, G&J, Atnip, and more.
Lisa Mattias, Regional Manager for our Unattended Retail channel, served as the auction chair for the second consecutive year, and Lisa invited Vistar So Cal President Jason Stranahan to co-chair.
The highlight of the weekend dinner was the awards segment, where Lisa Mattias received a delightful surprise. She was honored with the"Supplier of the Year" award. Andy Cleveland of Canteen, and CAVC president, made the award presentation.
BBI Vice President for Unattended Retail Paul Van Vleck expressed his admiration, saying,"They made the right call recognizing Lisa Mattias for everything she does for this association and the industry. This certainly is proven by the record-setting attendance. Keep up the good work, and enjoy the moment."
Congratulations to Lisa Mattias for this well-deserved recognition!
